Description

This summer, join Program and Educational Director Erica Max for a series of virtual educational experiences exploring the natural world here at the Mary May Binney Wakefield Arboretum. We will search for salamanders in the woods, catch cray fish in the pond for an up-close view, and visit with the variety of animals who live here. Enjoy these short "virtual" field trips via Zoom video conference and get even closer to the animals and nature than you could during a real visit!  Sessions will be held at 11:00 a.m. every Wednesday in July starting July 8th. Sessions will last 30-45 minutes. The Jr. Naturalist program is free but pre-registration is required. To attend any of the sessions, register through this event link and the Zoom invite will be sent one day before the event.

"Connecting students with Erica and the various creatures during our zoom field trip was nothing short of incredible. I've visited dozens of times and sitting in my living room in front of a computer screen, I did not expect to see the same wide-eyed-wonder from my students...but I did!"
- Miss McKinnon - Early elementary teacher from Edison school in Brighton
"The online zoom field trips offered by the Wakefield Estate were out of this world!  What a nice chance for my students to get a break from their usual zoom sessions and get "outside" for a little while.  Erica introduced us to several of her animal friends at Wakefield, and included information and discussion around life cycles, structures and behaviors, and adaptations.  We also took a walk down the decomposer trail, which really brought that topic to "life" for my 5th graders.  The entire experience was a much-needed break from the norm for my kids, and I was so happy to be able to offer it to them, courtesy of Erica and the Wakefield Estate!"
-Deb Nelson - Science Specialist at the Russell School, Roxbury
